Evangelist Billy Graham, 93, is being treated in hospital for bronchitis.

He was admitted overnight for an infection in his lungs. The hospital is in Asheville, North Carolina, near his home in Montreat.

He is resting comfortably and in a stable condition.

The evangelist watched a television feed of his grandson Will Graham preaching in Spartanburg, South Carolina, yesterday morning. He ate lunch with his daughter Gigi and one of his grandchildren.

Graham was admitted to hospital for pneumonia last November. His health has been good since his release, although he remains at home due to age-related conditions. He is working on a manuscript for a book.
